No issues after a year of driving

Vehicle2009 Subaru Forester 2.5X 4dr SUV AWD w/VDC (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI bought the car shortly after it came out. I wanted to wait at least a year before I submitted a review. So far I love the forester and have no regrets. I test drove the Rav4 and the mazda CX7 and felt the forester was the better car. Fuel consumption has been a bit disappointing. I am getting an average of 18mpg in mostly city driving. I have not experienced the rattling that was mentioned before however, I find the location for the heated seats very inconvenient. With the limited you get 2 additional speakers to which I added the optional subwoofer. Even so the sound is mediocre at best. Overall, the forester is not perfect. However, you get a lot for the money.
Best FeaturesHuge sunroof. Ground clearance with full time all wheel drive. Soft comfortable ride. Lots of utility.
Worst FeaturesMove the heated seats buttons to the front. Replace the 4 speed auto with the CVT. Cheap interior plastics. Poor speakers.
